Spatial View in Context
PAGES 4 WORDS 1214

Spatial View of Ireland
The work of William Pattison (1964) related the four traditions of geographical research including the "spatial view, the area study and the man-land relations." (Taaffe, 1974, p.1) According to the work of Taaffe (1974) each of the areas overlap one another and at times all three areas intersect one with the other reported to create the fourth in the traditions of geography. According to Taaffe (1974) where the focus is on spatial organization the topics of research will be on topics "with significant spatial components…such as those related to migration, transport networks of the analysis of settlement patterns." (p.2)

Taaffe relates that where such as recreation is examined there will be an examination "between selected environmental features and aesthetic satisfaction under the man-land view and comparative features of different recreational areas under the areal view and under the spatial view the differentials in accessibility and linkages of a….

Dot Maps of Three Datasets
Cell

Pine

RedwoodFigure 1. Dot plot representations of the normalized datasets. Leftmost of the screen shows the sample sizes of the biological cell, pine tree and redwood seedling. The mean center was computed for each dataset (see the red dots). The figure on the lower right side is a comparative representation of three datasets along with respective mean centers (se the scatter dots in the respective colors)

The visual representation of three data sets provides information about the distributions. First of all, the average intensity of cell data is very homogenous whereas redwood and pine datasets are distributed inhomogeneous. Accordingly, figure 1 provides information about the stochastic dependence between the data points in a unit area. The neighboring data points of redwood dataset are clustered. Therefore, the data points constructing the same pattern interact with each other. On the other hand, the distribution of pine dataset is random; therefore,….

This in fact creates spatial poverty traps where these previously did not exist. The areas no longer support the traditional businesses in which families engaged, and such families are obliged to become migrant laborers or to be away from their areas for extended periods of time. This in itself contributes to a lack of school attendance. Young children in a continual state of migration find it extremely hard to reach any consistency in terms of school attendance.
A lack of adequate parent supervision and motivation also play a large role in school attendance. Many educational publications and academics support the fact that the home environment plays a large role in the success or lack thereof in an educational career, especially at the primary school level. Where parents have stress factors such as extreme poverty, lack of education and lack of income, it is unlikely that school going children would be….

Media Capital: Towards the Study of Spatial Flows," author Michael Curtin asserts that academic study of media as it relates to Asian countries has been written with the archaic idea of these nations as developing countries. hile it is still certainly true that some Asian countries are technologically disadvantaged, many of them, particularly China and Japan are equal if not surpassing the media production of western countries. In addition, the preconceived notion of these countries as socially isolated from outside culture is equally outdated. Social media, internet usage, and telecommunications are more prevalent in Asia than a great deal of countries which are associated with a higher level of sophistication in this regard. Instead of focusing on media production within a single nation, the academic community is doing a disservice to the impact of globalization of media, particularly in major locals such as large cities in China and India….

ahnev, D. A., Huang, E., Lau, H. (2012). Subliminal stimuli in the near absence of attention influence top-down cognitive control. Atten Percept Psychophys (2012) 74:521-532

This particular research article is purposed to show that there is the possibility of preparing cognitive control devoid of laying emphasis on top-down attention. This particular study undertook four different experiments, but the main hypothesis of the study is that subliminal stimuli outside of the focus of attention can influence higher-order cognitive functions.

The method of the research study included four different experiments. The participants of the first experiment included twenty one undergraduate students, all from the University of Columbia, aged between 18-30 years. Ten of them were men and the rest were women. The second experiment included 4 men and 6 women between 18 -27 years. For the third experiment, there were nine students; five of them women and the rest men aged between 18-30….

Wright indicated her dead husband was after being questioned by Mr. Hale. Notwithstanding the close spatial relationship of husband and wife sleeping in the same bed, the murder took place without Mrs. Wright's knowledge. The upstairs area is clearly delineated from the downstairs kitchen where women "ruled the roost" when the men laugh at the women for their interest in quilting styles rather than the crime at hand. In addition, Glaspell also draws on the spatial relationships that exist between women in terms of their geographic proximity as well as their natural camaraderie and fellowship. Indeed, Mrs. Hale admits, "I might have known she needed help! I know how things can be -- for women. I tell you, it's queer, Mrs. Peters. We live close together and we live far apart. We all go through the same things -- it's all just a different kind of the same thing.".

Spatial hetoric
The complex ideas of space and time are more philosophical than anything, but are no doubt necessary when discussing the unique aspects of historical review. Azarhayu & Foote (2008) addressed this issue in their research as they offered models of how to interpret historical sites using the concepts of space and time. This essay will review this article and highlight the important aspects regarding spatial rhetoric and how certain spatial strategies can be applied to modify a historical narrative for academic purposes.

Spatial hetoric

The research article was premised on the idea that actual space may dictate the historical interpretation of any single historic event. The authors wrote "historical sites provide a tangible link to the past that they evoke. In this sense, the presentation of history on-site only makes explicit that which is implicit in the local landscape." This concretization of history has certain advantages and disadvantages, however this research….

Spatial Cognition
People perceive and understand space differently depending on how it makes them feel, especially with regards to boundaries. Consequently, the definition of space changes across various individuals because every space has different meanings and feelings for every individual. In some situations where individuals may feel comfortable and at peace in one space, others may be very uncomfortable and irritated. For instance, social statues can change the feelings people obtain from the specific space. Based on this analysis, it is relatively clear that space affects people differently, which contributes to varying interpretations, definitions, and understanding of space. Therefore, when addressing spatial cognition, it is increasingly important to examine the different ways space is perceived and the varying feelings associated with it.

People's Perception of Space

As previously mentioned, people's perceptions and understanding of space differ significantly on the premise of how space affect them, especially their feelings. The difference in interpretation, understanding,….

Tom Shulich ("ColtishHum")
A comparative study on the theme of fascination with and repulsion from Otherness in Song of Kali by Dan Simmons and in the City of Joy by Dominique Lapierre

ABSACT

In this chapter, I examine similarities and differences between The City of Joy by Dominique Lapierre (1985) and Song of Kali by Dan Simmons (1985) with regard to the themes of the Western journalistic observer of the Oriental Other, and the fascination-repulsion that inspires the Occidental spatial imaginary of Calcutta. By comparing and contrasting these two popular novels, both describing white men's journey into the space of the Other, the chapter seeks to achieve a two-fold objective: (a) to provide insight into the authors with respect to alterity (otherness), and (b) to examine the discursive practices of these novels in terms of contrasting spatial metaphors of Calcutta as "The City of Dreadful Night" or "The City of Joy." The chapter….

Another important strategy is that of exploring spatial relations. In such activities, children gain a better visual and practical sense of the spatial relations within mathematics. Scholastic's article portrays two girls discussing the appropriate spatial placement of a couch in a dollhouse. Such thinking methods can be influenced utilizing activities asking the children to map their house, their school, or their neighborhood in proportions. This will help open the child's mind to a more organized way of approaching spatial relations.
Using such strategies help lay the foundations of mathematics essential for later higher levels of learning. It is important to introduce elementary topics and concepts as early as possible, without boring young children to loose their interest. Early math lessons should include engaging activities which help keep the child moving and the learning environment active..


Additionally, the creation of a trust fund for housing could help to alleviate some of the economic burden on developers in Los Angeles. As compared to other major metropolis' such as San Jose, New York, and Chicago, Los Angeles uses the least amount of federal block grant funds on affordable housing on a per person basis, with just $23 per resident (In Short Demand). In addition to adopting an inclusionary zoning ordinance, the city should also implement an in-lieu fee to help fund it. Such a fee could be an alternative method to the institution of including an affordable unit in new developments, and could be directly applied to a housing trust fund. Estimates indicate that a $7 per square foot in-lieu fee would produce a surplus of upwards of $20 million a year, and could be used to remedy the housing shortage that not only affects Latinos, but other….

Cognitive Behavior Abilities in Men and Women
Three major differences cognitive behavior abilities men women: higher verbal abilities, higher spatial abilities, higher arithmetical abilities

Neuropsychologists and psychologists have widely analyzed the difference in cognitive abilities expressed by members of the male and female genders. The analysis of these professionals has revealed the existence of three major cognitive differences between the genders. The differences include higher verbal abilities in women; higher arithmetic abilities in males and higher spatial abilities in males. However, the possession of superior arithmetic abilities by males has been closely related their possession of top notch spatial abilities. This implies that the differences in cognitive abilities can be condensed or summarized into two.

Close look at the differences in verbal abilities among males and females reveal that women perform best in verbal tests as compared to their male counterparts. Additionally, a woman's language development cycle is faster than that of a….

Ana Mendieta Rape Scene
PAGES 7 WORDS 3145

As a result, the invited audience was essentially being asked to play the role of the person who is shocked by such a discovery -- and insofar as they knew they were being invited by Mendieta, and probably had basic knowledge of the crime that occurred, they were also being invited to imagine that the victim of such a crime might well have been Mendieta or any other female student on campus. This is interesting insofar as it relates to an observation made by Kwon about Mendieta's early work from this period: Kwon notes that "Mendieta's use of her/the body almost always approached erasure or negation: her 'body' consistently disappeared. This is striking given that most feminist artists during the 1970s vied for visibility and self-affirming expression through figurative, literal, sometimes 'in-your-face' presence. It is curious that Mendieta traced her absence instead."[footnoteRef:5] In "Rape Scene" this is paradoxically true:….

Aptitude
One of the concerns in assessing general intelligence is that there is an over-emphasis upon verbal intelligence. Even if the test is not specifically a verbal IQ test, this is a concern given that fluency in the English language (and the type of English used by the test designer) may impact the test-taker's ability to interpret the instructions. The purpose of the Cultural Fair IQ test is to distill all verbal advantages from the test design, versus tests such as the test of Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence. These tests, much like Visual-Spatial Intelligence tests are designed to test a specific 'kind' of intelligence vs. general intelligence.

Everyone has different personal strengths and weaknesses and the advantage of taking separate tests is that these abilities can be more perfectly isolated and measured. It also ensures that, for example, an unusually strong spatial intelligence does not result in an artificially high score on the….

The Symbiotic Relationship Between Music and Emotion: A Neuropsychological Exploration

Music has an unparalleled ability to evoke emotions, from elation to sorrow. This essay examines the complex interplay between music and emotion, exploring the neurological mechanisms that facilitate this connection and analyzing the psychological impact of music on human experience.

The Neural Architecture of Music and Emotion

Music activates specific neural pathways in the brain responsible for processing emotions. The amygdala and hippocampus, involved in emotional memory and association, are highly receptive to musical stimuli. Music can stimulate the release of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin, which produce pleasure, relaxation, and....

Who Needs Writing Intervention?

Writing intervention is a specialized form of instruction designed to support individuals who experience significant difficulties with written expression. Identifying those who need such intervention requires a comprehensive evaluation of the individual's writing abilities, academic needs, and underlying factors contributing to their writing challenges.

Students with Specific Learning Disabilities

Individuals with specific learning disabilities (SLD) often struggle with writing due to deficits in one or more cognitive processes. These disabilities can manifest in various ways, including:

Dyslexia: Difficulties with reading, spelling, and written expression stemming from weaknesses in phonological processing.
Dysgraphia: Impaired writing skills characterized by poor handwriting, difficulty....
